Alan Freeman - Wants
One of my aims in life is to try and hear everything that is supposed to be good! That is in the world of prog/experimental/weird music. I wonder if I'm getting there? This list regularly shrinks and grows, and is constantly changing. As always, I welcome suggestions. i.e. anything new that I should know? Before suggesting older stuff, check my collection & other lists on this site, as I may already know it! But, you never know, I'm still amazed by some things I missed!
Excepting any listed as "Original CD's wanted of these..." I'm not after actual releases unless cheap! There are very few things that I actually want/need for myself. Generally I'm researching, clutching at straws, looking for odd missing items needed for projects. As much of this stuff is liable to be of little or no interest to us, some is sure to be rubbish, a recording/copy is usually adequate. I'm usually just interested in hearing the items below, as a download or CDR copy, and/or we can barter/swap. I like to remaster LP transcriptions to achieve CD quality in my archive, so please do not offer me scratchy vinyl rips, nor ones that are low bandwidth or not transferred directly, and especially not ones with jumps or bits of tracks missing. EX+ vinyl or better please!
Are you looking for something? Searching in vain? Why not email me: firstname.lastname@example.org with your wants list? I have a huge archive. We may be able to come to a swap arrangement! I can swap physical CDRs, or online via flac or mp3. Or you can buy.

French research: 1970/80s acts of possible interest and/or need to hear...
We are currently working on a French music book!
We are after complete recordings of these singles...
Aleph - Totem / Zone limite
Equinox - Alicia / Le Fou Du Royaume De Nacre
Horizon - Bouffon / La nuit tombe
Incidence - Spleen / L'idole
4Z - Fais la fête / Pennsylvanie
4Z - Laisse la plage aux vagues / Faits divers
Pyrithe - L'Escalier / Soleil Matin - Sudio d'Antibes recording, with Jean-Pierre Massiera involved
Reincarnation - Souvenir D'un Enfant / Souvenir D'un Enfant (Suite)
Valeriana - Sans Fin / Douce Mort - ex Introversion
Agartha - Fini Pour Toi / Jacky Et Freddy, 7" private (1982) reputedly prog - 30secs at http://www.45toursderockfrancais.net/ rockfrancais/sons/agarthafini.mp3 - sounds like a funky Hackett with a bad drummer and punky female vocals, so not very promising!
Aiguade - CHANSONS DES TEMPS FIGÉS, LP Baccara International BI 001 732 (1976) prog-folk?
Amalgame - LES BILLARDS VERTS, LP private AMA 30 CM 1 (1979) Apparently more Memoriance or Ange vein
Ananke - Veprabilly/C'ui Qui L'dit Qui Y'est - almost unanimously listed as jazz-rock! Musea: Quatuor de Dijon, ANANKE produit un jazz-rock technique, virtuose et teinté d'humour. Le 45 tours "Veprabilly/C'ui Qui L'Dit Qui Y Est" (1982) peut évoquer les oeuvres de Frank ZAPPA ou ZAO, tout en empruntant à Albert MARCOEUR et ETRON FOU LELOUBLAN leur fantaisie et leur goût du pastiche. It also gets listed in the French punk discography!
Belle De Jour - Sustain Love / Etoiles De La Nuit, 7" (Village Music 81 101)
Giani Esposito - BOUDDHA - MÉDITATIONS, LP PES 301031 (1971) looks curious, with Serge Franklin
Germain Hubert Ales - same, MC private (1982) non-album material, Pudeur Et Ordure Douée de Raison, etc.
Germain Hubert Ales - LA DOULEUR, MC private (1982) non-album material

Sanctus - Jane /
Go To Hell, 7" Studio 35 BM 66
(1973) Go To Hell = nice heavy/brassy psych prog,
need A Side
Patrice Moullet - NYCTALOPE, (Distribution Musidisc - 171 332) - or a recording W
Terrain Vague - POUR QU'IL TE RESTE UN PEU DE MOI (SRC 543 954) 1981 French folk, could be interesting?
Jean-Louis Vincent - RÉSONANCES, LP Barclay 90.032 (1975) may just be folk, but has some interesting musicians on it

Dynamo - jazz-rock tinged with humour 1979
Imbroglio - SAUF LA PANTOUFLE

Jazz Virus Quartet - GROUPIE DE SANSONNET - what type of jazz?
Neophyt - Tout Seul Tous Les Deux/Le Noir - un rock mélodique dans la lignée de ICARE, bénéficiant d'une emphase vocale ...
Rackham-Le-Rouge (R 8201) Alain Gautier & others, seems to be pop
Roger La Honte - SAME, LP KI Records RLH 1112 (1983) Uppsala related w/ Serge Korjanevski, Michel Laporte
Trouble - unknown single from 1977
Yecta Plus Band (pre Flamen Dialis)
